Footwear-Centric Body Area Network with Directional UWB Antenna
Gaetano, Domenico; Sipal, Vit; McEvoy, Patrick; Ammann, Max; Brannigan, C; Keating, Louise; Horgan, Frances
A footwear-centric body area network employing a directional antenna is compared with waist-centric systems using omnidirectional and directional antennas. The impact of body movements on path gain is analysed for two bands at 3.99 GHz and 7.99 GHz. The path gain and data rate results demonstrate that footwear-centric configurations are equivalent or better than waist-centric body area networks.
